The Snapdragon 730G has been a gaming oriented chipset, as it was announced alongside the regular 730, boasting a 15% increase in graphics power. The 730G was seen in multiple popular mid range phones this year, including the much loved Pixel 4a. It can pull up to 280,000 even 290,000 on Antutu scores - which is enough to make the phone run even top gaming titles at high graphics and smooth frame rates. Apart from gaming performance, it also helps in the camera department, as it makes it possible for phones to support 960Fps super slow motion mode - something that wasn’t available on the regular 730.
Now, Qualcomm has announced and will be bringing out a new chipset, with a slight upgrade over the 730G, as an upcoming Poco device will be the first to feature it - in the Snapdragon 732G. This SoC is going to have better CPU performance, as the clock speeds are going to be increased from a previous value of 2.2GHz, to 2.3GHz now. Moreover, the Adreno 618 also sees an upgrade, as it’s going to have a 15% boost in rendering speeds as well.
Qualcomm’s AI Engine and the X15 LTE modem inside the processor will remain the same however. The chip will also support Quad HD+ display panels, with the possibility of shooting 4K HDR in portrait mode as well. Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi 6 will be compatible with this new mid range chip from Qualcomm too.
“We are extremely excited about the upcoming POCO smartphone and our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies that allowed us to create the first device on the market with the latest Snapdragon 732G Mobile Platform,” announced Sam Jiang, head of products, POCO Global.
This is an interesting move forward by not just Qualcomm, but Xiaomi as well, as there seems to be a developing partnership forming between the two giants - as Poco is also a sub-brand by Xiaomi. The 732G will definitely serve as a great mediatory chipset between the 730G and the 765G.
